E Source Provides Energy-Efficiency Research to Tennessee Valley Authority

E Source Companies, LLC - 03.27.2012

E Source has announced that it is now providing support to the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) as well as state energy offices and power distributors in the TVA service region for the comprehensive deployment of energy-efficiency and demand-response programs.

Under its contract with TVA, E Source will provide research, analysis, and tools related to energy efficiency, customer experience, technology assessment, account management, and marketing. The agreement also provides TVA, its local power distributors, and state energy offices in TVA’s seven-state region with access to all E Source services.

“We’re really excited to be working with this organization,” says Ken Black, chief customer officer at E Source. “TVA is committed to energy efficiency and has already achieved great savings through its programs. E Source is eager to do whatever we can to help TVA continue to successfully meet its goals.”

TVA, a corporation owned by the U.S. government, provides electricity for business customers and distribution utilities that serve 9 million people in parts of seven southeastern states at prices below the national average. TVA’s accomplishments include the following:

• From fiscal years 2010 to 2011, TVA energy-efficiency programs reduced electricity consumption in the TVA region by 765 gigawatt-hours—enough electricity to keep a single 100-watt lightbulb burning continuously for more than 1,100 years.

• TVA’s progress in increasing energy efficiency was recognized by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy in its 2011 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard. The scorecard named Tennessee and Alabama as among the nation’s most improved states when it comes to energy efficiency.

• TVA’s In-Home Energy Evaluations logged more than 4,800 home evaluations in the first three months of fiscal year 2012, bringing the total number of evaluations to more than 33,000 since the program was launched in 2009.
